Because it wouldn't be Christmas without a wreath.
Decorating for Christmas has never been so easy, especially as there’s a number of Christmas markets bursting with handicrafts and wine Christmas trees are now a thing (seriously, they’re wild). With our interior goals complete, it’s high time we started thinking about how to make our front doors just as festive and this is where Christmas wreaths comes in.
From traditional green foliage to something a little more statement – we’ve edited the top styles to ensure your front door is the best dressed this festive season.
Christmas Wreaths Ideas
We chatted to the home decor experts over at Berkeley Group and asked for their advice on dressing up our door this festive season.
They suggested, ‘At Christmas, your front door is nothing without a cheerful wreath. This year, why not try dressing your front door with two wreaths instead of one, to double up on the festive spirit. Create a statement decoration piece by adding ornaments, fabrics and plants to add more texture and interest.’
We’re not about to complain about more Christmas decor. Bring on the greenery.

How to make a Christmas wreath
Of course, you can always dabble in a spot of DIY and make your own Christmas wreath.
Self-proclaimed botanical adventurer and florist to fashion houses Hermes and Vivienne Westwood, Robbie Honey explains exactly how. Using only a pre-made base, cable ties and a few branches, wreath making just became the easiest new skill to show off to your friends about.
Step One: Robbie starts by using a blue pine base that you can buy from New Covent Garden Market. Once you have your base, let your imagination run wild, as your wreath is ready and waiting for some festive decoration.
Step Two: Going for the au natural look, Robbie uses pure white Cyclamen plants and Magnolia branches for a velvety feel and lichen-covered terracotta pots to add to the wreath, creating a wild and rustic look.
Step Three: Once the wreath is complete, Robbie attaches it to the doorframe using wires and ribbon. Just remember to also attach cable ties to make sure it’s safe and secure.
Voila. It’s a Christmas miracle.
